Perfection Simply Does Not Exist

What is perfect for you is not perfect for another person. Your definition of perfection is not universal. The definition of perfection varies from people to people. Perfection simply does not exist it is an illusion. This is the reason why avatars of gods and goddesses in Hinduism are not perfect beings. They have their imperfections. These imperfections pave the way for universal truth. Bhagavad Gita clearly tells that a person has to follow dharma. Bhagavad Gita does not ask Arjuna to be perfect. He is asked to do his duty. Upholding dharma is his duty not to be perfect. The mad craze for perfection in modern world leads to a permanent feeling of incompleteness. We are always made to feel that we are inadequate. The modern day perfection is directly associated with materialism. It is more related to more and more buying and throwing away old things. It is purely market driven. There are people who change their entire furniture every year. People change their smartphon

Four Kinds of Worshippers – Bhagavad Gita

Man’s attitude towards God depends on his attitude towards himself and towards the world. According to the Gita, four kinds of people worship God: (1) the afflicted who pray for a cure; (2) those after worldly prosperity: wealth, power, position, name, fame and so on; (3) jijnasus, seekers of spiritual Knowledge; and  (4) the jnani, the man of spiritual Knowledge. While Sri Krishna considers all of them noble, he reserves the pride of place to the jnani and considers him His very Self. A spiritual aspirant needs to be clear that the first two kinds of worshippers are still worldly, using God for their worldly ends; only their worldliness has a spiritual veneer. He needs to consciously belong to the third group. To such a seeker of knowledge every problem, every experience, is grist to his mill: he understands the evanescence of the world and uses his experiences to turn to God all the more. He does not give up his devotion because his prayers remain unans

Thoughts on Dream and Spiritual Progress – Swami Vireswarananda Maharaj

What is the significance of dreams, especially those of gods and goddesses? Swami Vireswarananda Maharaj: Dreams do not always indicate anything except that your mind is changing for the better. Generally, dreams are but mental impressions of the waking state seen, as it were, in sleep. So, dreams of gods and goddesses show that your mind is now thinking of higher things and is being impressed by such thoughts instead of worldly thoughts. Question: Sometimes, we dream of Sri Ramakrishna; is it a measure of our spiritual progress? Swami Vireswarananda Maharaj: To dream of Sri Ramakrishna is good, but do not give too much importance to such things. What is important is how do you feel about the change in your mindset, whether dispassion, love for God, sympathy for others and so on are on the rise or not. These are surer milestones in your spiritual progress. Question: But Maharaj, on being asked by a disciple whether dreams of enlightened souls or Divine Incarnatio

A Hindu Asks - Is Masturbation A Sin In Hinduism?

The question should have been not ‘is masturbation a sin in Hinduism’ but ‘why masturbation is not a sin in Hinduism?’ Sex is not considered sin in Hindu religion. But sex without consent is Adharma and it leads to total annihilation. Masturbation is widely mentioned in Hindu Puranas and Epics though not directly. Stories of saints, rishis, who have lost control of their will power and resulting in their semen falling out is found throughout Puranas. The villain in most cases is Indra, the king of Demigods. He gets the service of Apsaras or heavenly maidens for the purpose. There are also stories of women who have amorous feelings for men and them getting lost in their thoughts. Here too masturbation is not directly mentioned but we can read it between the lines. Masturbation is not a sin in Hinduism but there is energy loss. This energy loss results in saints and holy women losing their powers. Indra specifically wants this to happen. When single-minded focus is lost the

Quotes – Quips – Fear of the unknown is the mother of all fears

Fear of the unknown is the mother of all fears. Much of our anxiety and dread pertains to things and events of which we have no good knowledge. Looking these fears squarely in the face can often make them vanish into thin air, or at least make them appear less formidable. ………………… For although we take joy and hope to be synonymous with life; pain, affliction, evil and injustice regularly impinge on our lives to shock us out of such notions. …………………………. The pursuit of happiness is a basic teleological urge motivating all human behavior. The reveler in the streets, the scientist involved in cutting-edge research, the connoisseur of art and the meditation adept, each derives immediate or prospective pleasure from his or her specific engagement physical, intellectual, emotional or spiritual. But that pleasure is never unmixed. ............................ In its classificatory scheme of happiness (sukha) based on the three gunas, the Bhagavad Gita tells us that satt

Mata Sati then wanted to know why she has several births and Shiva has only one birth. Shiva then told Sati that he knew the secret of immortality. Sati then wanted to hear the secret of immortality.

Later Mother Goddess Sati appeared as Maa Parvati. But she liste

How Is Indian Culture Spiritual? – Swami Ranganathananda Answers

Writers and speakers generally say that Indian culture is spiritual. What does it mean? Does it mean that all the people of India are spiritual? India has its own share of wicked people, non-spiritual people, evil people. But if this statement has any meaning, it means this: that the direction of Indian culture is towards the high spiritual Truth hidden in every human being and that the honor the nation gives to any person depends upon the spiritual quality of that person. You can study a culture by asking the question: What is the highest human excellence that is appreciated in that culture? In one culture it is the military power, in another culture it is the intellectual strength, in another, it may be money. In India, all these are respected, but the highest respect goes to a person of God, one who has realized oneness with all through spiritual development. Throughout history, India has maintained this quality; the highest person in India is a person of God, a person of spir

We have forgotten to touch and hug family because our fingers are busy on the smartphone

We are constantly measuring our life based on likes and shares on social media. We want maximum shares and likes. Some even go to the extent of buying likes and shares. A person who truly knows his/her value and strength will not bother about applause. A weak person who has self-doubt is always anxious about what other people will think and is constantly concerned and bothered by the reaction of others. Anxiety and depression associated with missing out are on the rise. Many among us waste our precious time and energy on the smartphone. We cannot keep the smartphone away for more than a minute. This mental health condition needs immediate treatment.   If not treated it might cause serious damage to the person and others. There is no limit to our wishes but we will not be able to do everything that we wish.   We always live in the fear of not being able to fulfill our wishes. Instead of having too many wishes we need to learn to focus on a few and get them fulfilled. Medi
